This episode with Swami Tirtha is about the changing seasons and how to adapt to it but, as always, Swami and Sharon go down a few ‘rabbit-holes’ to share Swami’s wisdom on a lot of things.
0:03:52.1 They begin with the switch from summer to fall and how we can strengthen ourselves to adapt to the change. Swami connects food ─ what we eat ─ to how we adapt to the changing weather, that when it gets chilly, we eat warmer or cooler foods.
Swami shares some guidelines but says that our intuition is our best guide.
0:10:53.6 Swami now talks about the three different Ayurvedic body types ─ air, fire, and water ─ and how some people especially those with an autoimmune condition have a combination of two or three.
0:16:25.9 Again, he emphasizes that everything, in theory, sounds great but the key is that we have to listen to our intuition and our body and what makes us feel good.
0:22:18.5 At this point, they talk about truisms ─ trusting your intuition and the idea of oneness ─ and as Swami says, “As long as we keep thinking of anything in terms of dualities, we’re doing ourselves and our hearts a disservice.” As an example, he pointed out that male and female both have the same challenges when it comes to listening to intuition when Sharon commented that women allow themselves to be talked out of things much easier than men.
0:26:36.1. Swami excitedly shares some of his energy exercises and “seeing light.” Then, the conversation shifts to the “spiritual” with God and the angels and how it’s always a better choice to do what God says.
0:41:36.6 Towards the end of the show they talk about taking ownership of one’s own healing and two great mantras ─ “Keep breathing” and “Thank you for making this the best moment possible.”
